General Day-Case Orthopaedic Surgery

 

Minor Operation (e.g. Excision of Lumps & Bumps)

When you notice lumps and bumps on your hand or leg, please consult your doctor immediately. Excision of lumps and bumps is done as necessary.

 

This procedure can be performed by intravenous sedatives, local anesthesia, surveillance anesthesia, or general anesthesia in a day-case surgery center or operating theatre.

 

Abscess Incision and Drainage

Abscess is an accumulation of pus within the tissue of the body that causes red or swollen tissue. In general, abscess is benign and can be treated by antibiotics.  Signs and symptoms of abscesses include redness, pain and swelling.

 

Incision and drainage can clean pus and relieve abscess to treat abscess.  At the same time, the doctor will pick the sample for further testing to determine the causes of inflammation.

 

This procedure can be performed by intravenous sedatives, local anesthesia, surveillance anesthesia, or general anesthesia in a day-case surgery center or operating theatre. Choice of anesthesia should be made according to the size of abscess, severity of redness and inflammation.

 

Dislocation Closed Reduction

This surgery is to treat joint dislocation or torn capsule induced bone dislocation. The dislocation is the joint facet dislocation without rupture of articular capsule. Overuse injury is the main cause of the problem. Common sites of dislocation are shoulder, patella, finger and acromioclavicular joint. Patients with dislocation will have joint pain and difficulty in movement. Deformity may exist when the condition becomes worse.

 

Closed Treatment For Fracture Case

Closed fracture is the condition that fractured bone retains under the skin without exposure to the environment. Closed fracture has lower infection risk. During the treatment, the physician will re-position the fractured bone and stabilize the repositioned area with appropriate materials such as gypsum and external splint. Anesthesia is required.

 

Excision Of Ganglion (Open)

Ganglion is a cyst filling with gel-like fluid and mainly locates at articular capsule, tendon sheath or ligament. Apart from aspiration of the fluid in ganglion, patients can consider excise and remove the entire cyst.
